The Moon

   The moon carries within itself its own death in the form of its increasing shadow, as we all do.  It has, however, the power to throw off that shadow and be reborn.  So the moon represents to us the promise of rebirth, of the power of life engaged in the field of time and space to throw off death and be reborn.  That’s the sense of these representations – that in procreation death has been thrown off and the seed has gone to rebirth through the miracle of the woman’s body, which the navel represents.   G29
